Time Out Challenge #50

I had just the stamps I needed out on my crafting table for a cute little black and white number ... why not take advantage of it for a challenge, too?

For Time Out's 50th challenge, based on this fabulous inspiration:


I've gone crazy with lots of images from 'across the pond' to make a belated birthday card for a cousin.  I know: unforgiveable!  But I do hope it will bring a smile, and maybe a chuckle, too!

Such fun to put together this MFT set with the perfect PTI sentiment!
 

Tom had a little 'photoshop' fun with my travel photos!
Yes, London -  2012!  and I cannot wait to return!

Back to having 'loads of fun!'  I hope your week is starting out bright!

Who's that cutie patootie standing in the rain? Why it's you! So much fun, Michele. I love what you've done for the challenge. Those outline stamps are perfect for it and look great on the black background. I'm still trying to think of something. Time may run out on me.

Super fun photo! I love the design of your card and how you combined London images with a cute suburban scene. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Blimey (one of my favourite sayings) this is a corker!! You nailed this challenge and those stamps are so perfect. Photoshop is so clever. I can't use it much myself but Dave is a whizz so must see if he can jazz up some of my photos like this. Absolutely love what Tom did to your photo!! Always so happy to see you at TIME OUT and hope you can join our birthday challenge this week!!

I think your cousin will joyfully 'forgive' your late card, given how ultra fabulous it is! London 2012 suits you well! Creative husband you have! Do you plans for a return in the works? Hoping so...
